Prison places O.J. Simpson in protective custody after his parole hearing

After former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson was granted parole during Thursday’s hearing, Simpson was moved out of the general population and into confined housing, according to TMZ Sports. 

This is not uncommon. Because Simpson was granted parole, it is now the prisons resposibility to ensure he gets home in one piece. 

TMZ Sports said there was no specific threat on O.J.’s life but several inmates in the prison have life sentences “and nothing to lose” and may be “opportunists” looking to hurt or kill Simpson before he leaves to raise their own profile.

The prison rep said O.J. did not request the special protection but explained, “It’s in the best interest of O.J. and the prison to make sure that he’s safe and comes out in one piece.”

This was a smart thing, because now inmates who watched the news can see that O.J. made about 600k dollars while in prison off his pension.  This was likely the best move for the Juice.
